What does “Skidamarink” mean?


“Does Skidamarink mean anything?”

Actually, Skidamarink does not mean anything. It’s just a silly, made-up word. The song is originally from an early 20th century Broadway musical, and over the years has been sung as Skinnamarink, Skinnymarink, Skiddymerink, and more.

It’s a great song for Parent/Child classes. The parent and child can face each other and sing! It’s always nice to finish with a big hug. And it’s a nice choice around Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, and any day children may want to share a little love. It’s also fantastic for school performances.
